Property type farmhouse

About the property

Beautiful, private, close to beach, with stunning veiws over the countryside.

Quinta da Mota I & II are two detached cottages next to each other, part of an old farm implanted in the middle of the Portuguese Silver Coast. The accommodation offers versatility and privacy, as you have two separate houses with their own kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms each.

Quinta da Mota II is a newly built detached house erected on the ancient walls of the old farm barn. Its generous 80m2 are distributed between a spacious living / dining open space, two bedrooms (sleeps 5 people) and 1 bathroom. It is modern / brightly decorated with a touch of 'Mediterranean'. The living room with open plan kitchen has patio doors leading to a south-facing spacious terrace and balcony where you can enjoy the beautiful views over the exterior gardens, contemporary swimming pool and a fragrant apple tree orchard.

Quinta Da Mota I has also a spacious living room, kitchen and two bedrooms (sleeps 7 people) and 1 bathroom. The living room features a comfy sofa bed that extends to a generous double bed when needed.

Despite its rural setting, the location is very convenient, with the nearest beach (Sao Martinho do Porto) only 7 minutes away by car, and Alfeizerao's International Equestrian Center (CEIA) within walking distance where you can find a great restaurant serving a three course meal( lunch) for 6.50 euros! The food is great and it's a 3 minutes walk from the property.

The garden is very private, with well distributed shady and sunny areas. It includes a barbecue area, covered garden furniture for outdoors dining, a hammock, lawn and a sand pit.

The generously proportioned outdoor swimming pool (9x4m) has salty water technology, which uses much lower levels of chlorine and is therefore much more gentle to your skin. The area around the pool is equipped with sun loungers and a large parasol.

There is the possibility to rent the properties separate, for a smaller group.

If you are interested in renting it separate, please mention this in your booking / enquiry, or alternatively you could search the homeaway website as they are also listed separate as two bedrooms.

Overview of the area

Sao Martinho Do Porto: Retaining its Portuguese charm and character, Sao Martinho do Porto, where the nearest beach is located, is a remarkably picturesque seaside town. The town is built around the sheltered bay that provides for safe bathing away from the strong Atlantic currents. The bay also benefits from warmer waters thanks to its sheltered location which are ideal for practising a variety of water sports available. There are life guards on the beach during the summer and the beach is cleaned most days showing off its beautiful iridescent silver sand which is where the area gets its name from. Surrounding the bay there are numerous cafés and restaurants where the majority of the food on offer is typical Portuguese (superb seafood), though there is also a very good Italian & also a Swiss restaurant along the front of the bay too (with English translation on their menus). We can recommend:

Acasa – Excellent service & fresh fish you can choose.

Carvalho – In Main St – Old Town centre. Level with the back of Hotel Atlantica. Very good value.

O'Farol - located on the beach itself with the best views and good value.

If relaxing on the green is what takes your fancy there are a number of excellent well established golf courses in the surrounding area, and more are planned.

There are a few small supermarkets in Alfeizerao and Sao Martinho, which also has larger supermarket (Intermarche) for the weekly shop. Alternatively, another large supermarket – Modelo – located in Caldas da Rainha is very well socked with fresh local produce, meat and fish, as well as covering all other shopping needs.

Climate & vicinity

Sao Martinho do Porto enjoys an idyllic climate that tends not to reach oppressive extremes of hot or cold. Daytime temperatures mid-summer tend to range between 26ºC and 34ºC. Mid-winter daytime temperatures typically range between 14ºC and 18ºC.

Within the vicinity of Sao Martinho is the beautiful historic town of Obidos (approximately 10 min drive) which overlooks the Obidos lagoon (the largest lagoon in Europe). Similarly to Sao Martinho, the lagoon provides safe bathing away from the strong Atlantic currents. Sao Martinho's other neighbouring towns include Nazare and Peniche, typical Portuguese seaside towns which offer a good number of cafés, bars and excellent restaurants.

Suggestions for exploratory days out:

You must visit the beautiful medieval castle of Obidos with its quirky little streets, only 10 minutes by car, were you find a range of fine Portuguese restaurants and experience fine dining at its best.

The exquisite Berlangas archipelago is also a must. It is a natural reservation with fantastic opportunities for bird watching and there is also an amazing beach between the cliffs. To get there you must catch the boat from Peniche that is 15 minutes' drive from the property.

Peniche is also fantastic for its fresh fish market and surfing. The beaches of Peniche and Baleal are considered the best in Europe for surfing.

If golf is your passion, then Royal Obidos Golf Resort, Golfe do Bom Sucesso and Praya del Rey, with its immaculate greens, great location and beautiful private beaches, will offer you a great experience.

And don't forget that beautiful Lisbon is 50 minutes' drive away. This is an amazing city waiting to be discovered: do include the characteristic Fado (traditional portuguese music) and regional cuisine in a typical Bairro Alto taverna, a visit to Sintra palace (amazing views over the city) and also some time in the Alfama area (Mosteiro dos Jeronimos), where most of the old architecture is centred.

How to get here

Lisbon Airport is recommended as it is an easy drive along the A8 taking between 40-50 minutes depending on traffic. Use Alfeizerao as your destination on your GPS, leave the A8 motorway at junction 20 and head north on the N8 for 4 Km. You'll find Quinta da Mota on a left turn off the N8, just before the building where CEIA (Centro Equestre Internacional de Alfeizerao) is located.


We hope you'll have an unforgettable holiday here on Portugal's silver coast. Please get in touch if you would like to receive more information, either about the property or to get suggestions for local information, places to visit and days out. We look forward to welcome you in Quinta da Mota and would love to hear about your experience, comments and recommendations.
